    I posted a pic of this quilt top earlier in the week.

    Now here it is quilted,

    The tote is for my daughters advisor on her doctorate committee and the bow tucks without the bows, is for her friend who is also graduating with her phd.

    I love this tote pattern. I originally saw it in another post on this board.. thank you to whoever it was who made it first and posted. It takes a little skill, but boy does it ever turn out great!
    Has pockets on all sides both inside and out...and the divided zipper pocket in the middle of the inside is a great touch. The pattern is called "The Professional Tote".

    I made it with home dec fabric that I bought in California for $3 yd. I wish I was there now, I would get some more....

    Enjoy!

    Love them & for the next one, I would go with the darker fabric. Light colors get soiled faster I think.

    So, in all the rush, I didnt get to make the graduate anything, so...
    Im giving my dads 35mm camera and all the lenses, tele, wide angle, filters, etc. my dad died in 2007 of cancer. Daughter was out of the country and didnt get to visit him after he got sick, he only lived 6 weeks. I thought she might like this gift, what do you think.
